Creating Custom Scan

I am trying to follow NiteHawk's suggestion of how to create a Custom Scan at this thread:

http://forum.avira.com/wbb/index.php?pag…d&postID=780432

1) Presume this still works for Avira AntiVir (free) v 10??

2) Is there any significance to ProfileType=11

Is there anywhere I can find more information on definition/meaning of Search Parameters, Profile Types etc, etc


Many thanks :)

OK. I suppose that is simpler.

Is there anywhere I can find more information on definition/meaning of Search Parameters, Profile Types etc, etc??

This is just for interest/learning more about Avira AntiVir.

Thanks :) :)

Hi,
Open the Avira Control Center > Administration > Scheduler > (here right-click and insert new job). Then a job setup wizard will open up. Follow the instructions.

I understand that.

I am interested in learning more about the inner workings of scans - is there anywhere I can find more information on definition/meaning of Search Parameters, Profile Types etc, etc??

Hi,

Quoted

Inner working of scans - Well, it's a technical programming thing, for that, you need to know programming ;) , to be simple, a scanner works by scanning files for malicious code etc. When it detects such a pattern, it displays a warning window.

Search parameters - Are you referring to the scan configuration?

Profile types - Scan profile types are predefined scanning options set up within AntiVir. You can scan different areas by triggering the scan via that respective profile.

If this is not what you asked, please write here a sample answer of what I should tell :)

If you look at the log files for a scan under Configuration Settings it tells you which configuration file is being used. These configuration files are in either Program Filles\Avira\Avira Desktop\ or ProgramData\Avira\Avira Desktop\PROFILES\. One example is alldisks.avp.

If you open alldisks.avp (use Notepad) you see:

#########################################################
# $ANTIVIR$SCANNER$AVP
#########################################################
# This file has been created automatically.
# DO NOT MODIFY!!
#########################################################

[CFG]
GuiMode=1
ExitMode=1
SystemScan=1

[SEARCH]
Parameter=0x00001000

[CONTROLCENTER]
ProfileType=6
ProfileName=Local Hard Disks
ProfileDescription=This profile scans all local hard disks on your system for viruses or unwanted programs.




This is the Search Parameter and Profile Type I am referring to.

The purpose is to better understand the scope of the different scan types.

All help gratefully received. :) :)
